Abstract
The quest for the origin(s) of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) continues to be a far-reaching pillar of high energy astrophysics. The source scrutiny is mostly based on three observables: the energy spectrum, the nuclear composition, and the distribution of arrival directions. We show that each of these three observables can be well reproduced with UHECRs originating in starburst galaxies.
